Review: This old school Winston McAnuff tune has long been out of print. The Jamaican singer and composer behind it was also known as Electric Dread and fused funk, dub and reggae into his own unique forms, often with real social and political power in his lyrics. This is the first time it has ever been pressed on its own 7" and includes a natty dub on the reverse by Fatman Riddim Section. The original, "Unchained", has wailing vocals that speak of real passion and pain as they muse on black independence. The lazy grooves wiggle beneath, with rolling percussion and acoustic guitar riffs all adding to the experience.
Review: Dub heads will be keen to cop this hard to find, long out of print Winston McAnuff tune 'What A Man Sow.' This is its first time on 7". Only 500 have been pressed and it comes with a full colour sleeve as well as a tasty dub on the flip from Fatman Riddim Section. The main attraction though is the a-side, with its impassion vocals crying out up top and bearing plenty of raw and honest soul. Shakers and swaggering dub, reverberating bass and acoustic guitar riffs all colour in the airwaves in warm and welcoming ways.
